Girl and pet dog dressed as super heroesIt’s finally October, which means in addition to decorating your Chico apartment for fall, it’s time to start getting your Halloween costume ready...that means your pet's costume too! Bring creative couple costumes to a whole new level by dressing up with your adorable furry companion. 

There are so many different themes to choose from! If you're still trying to figure out what to be, check out these hilarious ideas for some inspiration:

1. Red Riding Hood & The Big Bad Wolf Disguised as Grandma

The easiest way to do this is to have your pet be the Big Bad Wolf and to dress yourself as Litte Red Riding Hood. All you need is a wig and a pair of glasses and your pet will fool everyone into thinking they only see grandma.

2. Hot Dog Vendor & Wiener Dog

The jokes about wiener dogs and hot dogs have been going on for decades, might as well embrace it! Check out this hot dog costume for your favorite four-legged friend.

3. Circus Trainer & Lion

Strap a fluffy mane onto your pet and BAM! You’ve got yourself a lion cub. You can dress up as the lion tamer and voila, costume perfection. 

4. Dorothy & Toto

This costume idea is one of the simplest ones, especially if you have a little Cairn Terrier at home. Either way, your pet can be your little Toto.

5. Han Solo & Chewbacca

Star Wars will never not be cool. Check out this cute little Chewbacca costume you can stick on your pet!

6. Shaggy & Scooby Doo

Have a green shirt and some khaki pants? Now that you’ve figured your costume out get your dog to be Scooby by simply purchasing a bright blue collar and using temporary (non-harmful) color, make big spots all over your dog.

7. Batman & Robin

The famous duo is back at it saving Gotham City! Let your pet be either Batman or Robin.

8. Russell & Doug

From Disney’s Up! Be the classic representation of a little boy and his best friend. This duo works perfectly if you or a friend has a golden retriever!

9. Police & K-9 Dog

Have your dog be the fiercest dog at the party! Just pick the right size for your K-9 and your own set.

10. Fire Fighter & Rescue Dog

Have your pup be your helping hand with this adorable fire fighter costume.

Have Fun!

There you have it! Make this the year your pet gets to join in on the fun of dressing up. Even if you don’t take them to the party with you, you can still make a great photo and lasting memory for years to come.
